Salzburg is the city of Mozart and music festivals and is also home to several Baroque orchestras. Most prestigious is the Mozarteum Orchestra, which was founded in 1841 with the help of Mozart’s widow and their sons; today it is one of Austria's leading symphony orchestras under the leadership of English conductor Ivor Bolton. It plays a leading role in the annual Salzburg Festival and has a permanent home at the Mozarteum, a complex of two concert halls built between 1910 and 1914. The grand and glittering neo-classical Great Hall (Grosser Saal) has seating for 800 and is regarded as Salzburg’s most beautiful concert venue, while the Viennese Hall is a smaller auditorium perfectly proportioned for chamber-music concerts, with an audience capacity of 200.
As well as performing around the world and hosting weekly concerts at their home base, the Mozarteum Orchestra also performs at the annual Mozart Week every January. In June 2015 Salzburg celebrates The Sound of Music’s 50th anniversary; kicking off on Monday June 22, the festivities will culminate on Friday June 26 with a concert at the Mozarteum, where much-adored song tunes from the movie will get a rousing airing. There are free organ concerts in the Great Hall most days at 12.30pm.
The Mozarteum is located at Schwarzstrasse, and its ticket office is open Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm5pm, and on Saturday from 9am to noon. Prices vary by event.
